Meetings industry karma, and the ghosts of the past year
For their last show of the 2013, Jon Trask and Elizabeth Glau take a cue from “A Christmas Carol” and discuss how the ghosts of past (year) and bad karma from your dealings with other industry professionals can come back to haunt your future in the meetings industry. Worse still, there are the bad ethical decisions and the chain rattling of those decisions that can follow someone for years.
Whether it’s small things, like ignoring people you don’t think can “help” you on social media; or big things, like making vendors bid under false pretenses. They look at some of the bad karma things that they’ve both seen people do. But, since it’s also a season of joy, they talk about some of the good karma that they’ve seen as well, and how having honest conversations and actions can create good karma to banish those ghosts and lead to better relationships with peers, customers and vendors.
We wish you the very best of holidays; and successful and prosperous new year.
